I really like this product, but because of the price I usually ask for it as a present! It's not as moisturising as it's name suggests, and as someone said below it dries quite quickly on the skin so it needs to be blended speedily. However it gives just the right amount of coverage for most days, and I love how you can build it up - something that isn't possible with most tinted moisturisers - and it never looks heavy. Add a little bit of concealer on my spots and I look really healthy!
I have pretty pale skin, and I find that the Nude colour is just about light enough for me. I think there is one shade lighter, but it's *really* pale.

Over-hyped and disgusting product. Feels much more suffocating than regular sunscreen. Received sample and all I received on my end was cystic acne and clogged pores.

Every time I apply this, I'm struck by how SHINY it is. As it first hits my skin, it appears like I've hit my face with a zillion teeny shine particles. BUT - it dries quickly (almost too quickly, so make sure you go back and smooth out any areas that have dried before you buffed/stippled/blended it out) and calms down to an impressively natural, radiant look.
I went to an LM Training for their Fall '08 product launches, and the Trainer explained that the TM is perfect alone, but is easily blendable with other foundations. TM alone doesn't provide much coverage (although is perfectly buildable) so when you want the luminosity it provides, try mixing a dab of this and that with your regular foundation to achieve the LM TM look but with better coverage.
My only con is the color selection... I'm NC25 and have to mix a bit of this and that to get it just right for my skin color.
But it's worth the effort because iIve tricked myslf into thinking that because Moisturizer is part of its name, I'm doing something good for my skin.
Bottom Line: I really like how fresh and radiant my skin looks with this product. It doesn't interfere with my Primers, and setting my face with a quick dusting of Chanel Double Perfection doesn't detract in the radiance factor. Oh, and a little goes a long way.
Edited: Okay, I'm dropping it down to 3 lippies after using it every day this week. I'm tired of mixing to achieve the desired color result. It's just too damn orange for my cool toned skin. The color selection leaves a lot to be desired.

This is pretty ok. I got it in the Flawless Face kit from Sephora. I got the Nude version and it is a bit too dark for my skin right now. Maybe it will work better in the summer when I get a bit of color. It goes on pretty well, but it a bit thicker than I would have thought a tinted moisturizer would be. The packaging is ok, but it does tend to run into the cap. Overall, it isn't bad.

I got it because it's one of the must-have products on almost every magazine and in every makeup board. My skin is fairly good except the freckles and the uneven pigmentation, the coverage of the tinted moisturizer is heavier than i thought, but i still wear it on weekends when I don't want to put on too much makeup. The one I bought even comes with SPF 20 which is perfect.
However, i don't know if it's because the weather in Singapore is too humid, this tinted moisturizer left me feeling sticky and melts off in 2 hrs. Not only that, my blackheads on the nose & forehead significantly worsened since i started using this. Maybe it's just me, but this tinted moisturizer clogs my pores. I think it's over-priced and over-raved.

I really like this product but I have to say that if you use it just by itself you're going to need to have naturally good skin becuase the coverage is really light. It does give a really nice glow which is why on those days when I cant get away with just using this by itself ( a breakout) I like to pair it with the Laura Mecier silk creme foundation. I put the tinted moisturizer on first (since it has SPF 20) and then I put a little bit of the silk creme on (or mix the 2 together), maybe it's just me but even after putting on the silk creme I can still see that "glowing look" from the tinted moisturizer coming thru. Pricey, yes, but I've found that usually with pricer products the quality is better, so you dont need to use as much, which means it will last you a longer time. People comment on how nice my skin looks when I have this on! Love it!

I have very oily skin so I bought the oil free tinted moisturizer. I applied it with my hands and after applying I washed my hands and you could tell there was oil in the moisturizer by the way the water rinsed off my hands.
The moisturizer is really great at covering imperfections. I didn't need to use any concealer or foundation after applying.
If it didn't make me oily I'd be awesome!

I adore the Laura Mercier line, and my addiction to Laura Mercier started with this tinted moisturizer. I have fair skin with yellow undertones and nude is PERFECT for me. This product has sheer to medium coverage (but that's whats expected right? It's a TM not foundation) <--don't get me started on the moisturizing foundation from LM, I adore that too! HAHA ok, so back to the TM. It has spf 20, GREAT. What I do is squeeze a bit out, dab on the forhead, nose, cheeks and chin and then I gently rub it in like any other moisturizer. It blends beautifully. Part of my 5 minute face. This is an expensive product, but it's worth the money! I have tried a number of different TMs and this one is THE BEST! :) worth trying. You can go to a LM counter or Sephora and ask for a sample.

I love this product and have been using it for about 8 years. No matter what other foundations i try, i always come back to my beloved LM. I like its soft, creamy but somewhat transparent coverage, the color nude is terrific for my light, yellow-toned skin -- it just evens things out a bit and lets my skin be. If I want a bit more coverage at times, I pat on Armani's Face Fabric foundation over the cheek area, I think the price is pretty good also, since you get more than the usual 1 oz in many other foundations/tinted moisturizers.

It controls oil breakout so it's great for combination skin like mine. It minimizes pores around my T-zone, which is great. It also adds a healthy glow to the skin while reducing redness from blemishes. The coverage is light, but considering that this is a tinted moisturizer and not a liquid foundation, I think that's fair. The price is a bit steep but it lasts quite a long time, so no complaints I guess. I'm still finishing up my first tube and have already purchased my second. Love it!
